This 700-year-old castle is our venue of the week

The stunning exterior at Duns Castle Duns Castle is a 700-year-old venue full of charm and character, which offers couples a stunning space for ceremonies and receptions. The first sight of the premises is unforgettable, standing high and proud, it draws couples nearer with its intriguing stone gargoyles, turrets and fine Gothic windows. 

The bell-tower, sundial, arches and mellow stone walls make a perfect backdrop to wedding photos, and
lovebirds can light up the exterior with their atmospheric colour. Guests are blown away by the main hallway upon entering with its spectacular pendant hung ceiling and historic portraits. Surrounded by beautiful and mature parkland full of wildlife, couples can take a romantic walk to see ancient yews, an extensive lake and wonderful trees that all look perfect no matter the season.

Fully licensed for ceremonies, most of the venue’s weddings take place in the grand Drawing Room. With room for 60 people, this space features a fireplace, amazing views and a large mirror imported in 1796. After the vows, the room gets transformed back into the cosy sitting room.

The building is everything a castle should be; gothic, ornate, beautiful, full of original antiques yet warm and comfortable. The main floor has reception rooms that flow into each other with the all-important bar in the middle! Bedrooms are located on the second and tower floor with a mezzanine level available for those who do not want to climb so high. This historic venue offers couples an administrator’s planning skills in drawing the whole stay together.
